Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang RETURNED to Chelsea’s squad for the first time in a month as he made the bench for their clash With Tottenham, but the striker failed to make an impact as the Blues lost 2-0
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned to the Chelsea squad for their 2-0 loss to Tottenham on Sunday.
He made it on off the bench after 80 minutes but struggled to make an impact as the Blues were outplayed by Spurs.
The striker has been out-of-favour at Stamford Bridge in recent weeks, but appears to be coming back into the fray amid the Blues’ recent struggles in front of goal.
He was left at home for Chelsea’s recent trip to his old side Borussia Dortmund, who won the tie 1-0.
Aubameyang has been restricted to just 12 league games this season and has only managed one goal, but does have a goal scoring history in the Premier League after scoring 92 goals for Arsenal.

Graham Potter’s side have scored just four goals in nine league games this year after Sunday’s loss.
Spurs are now 14 points above Chelsea in the league, with the Blues winless in their six league games.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was not impressed with his former side’s performance as he told Sky Sports: ‘It is not good enough. Fraser Forster had an easy day today [In the Spurs goal].
‘He had one 50/50 clearance that he caught really well, but other than that there was nothing. That is not good enough for Chelsea. Spurs were really good at the back, but there should always be a moment, and there wasn’t today.
On Potter, he added: ‘When you are at a big club, if you lose two games in a row that is a crisis already. These owners want to do this project and Potter is their man so they will give him as much time as possible, but you expect something back from him, a win from somewhere.
‘He is under pressure. He can only control the crowd by winning his next match against Leeds. That is the only thing he can do.’
